Now let me step off my soapbox and introduce two of my favorite vintage finds, which also happen to be for sale in my etsy shop. How convenient!!
This ring is made from a vintage button in an amazing teal green. I love these buttons because they shimmer and glow in a way that makes me think of a crystal ball. So pretty much what I'm trying to say is that I know everything that will happen in the future, all thanks to this ring:
I love the way it looks when the sun hits it.
These vintage beads previously resided on a necklace, but they are so bright and chunky that I found the necklace to be too much. Plus the string looked as if it had seen better days. So I chopped the necklace up and gave these beautiful beads a new life- as earrings!
Who else is addicted to vintage supplies?? I know that some people would see these things as tacky, and disregard them as junk. But I guess it just goes to show that one (wo)man's trash is another (wo)man's treasure. Because I felt like I had unearthed a fatty gold nugget when I came across these!
